Arsenal manager Arteta demands immediate payment of Martin Zubimendi’s release clause at Real Sociedad without any negotiations, as he sets sights on a £136m duo.


Arteta instructs Arsenal to trigger star’s release clause ‘without delay’ as he targets £136m duo.


Reports suggest that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is eager for the Gunners to swiftly secure a deal by paying Martin Zubimendi’s release clause at Real Sociedad.


This move comes as Arsenal recently claimed the top spot in the Premier League standings after defeating Brentford, with Liverpool now trailing in second place on goal difference following their 1-1 draw against Manchester City.


With the FA Cup matches taking precedence over the weekend, Arsenal will maintain their position at the top until at least after the international break.


Arsenal’s progress to the Champions League quarter-finals was aided by the summer signings of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and David Raya, orchestrated by Arteta and Edu. Unfortunately, Jurrien Timber’s injury has hindered his contribution to the team.


Speculation surrounds the need for new strikers at the Emirates Stadium, as former players and pundits doubt the team’s ability to win the Premier League with only Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah as options upfront.


There has been much discussion surrounding potential new strikers potentially joining the Emirates Stadium this summer, as former players and pundits suggest that Arsenal may struggle to compete for the Premier League title with only Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah as options up front.


Nevertheless, Arsenal manager Arteta has other priorities this summer, including a midfielder high on his list, with rumors once again linking the Gunners to Real Sociedad’s Zubimendi.


According to Spanish publication Nacional, Arteta has instructed Arsenal to pay the €60m (£51m) release clause required to bring Zubimendi to north London, without engaging in negotiations with Real Sociedad.


This move would give Arsenal an advantage over other clubs that may try to drive a hard bargain due to interest from various teams across Europe in the Spanish player.


Arteta is keen on strengthening the core of his squad by bringing in a player who has long been linked with a move away from Sociedad. Arsenal is determined to continue their success this season.


Arsenal is willing to meet the requested amount by Real Sociedad, but they are also considering other players for potential signings.


Gyokeres is the top priority for Arsenal this summer. Recent reports suggest that Sporting Lisbon’s Viktor Gyokeres is the Gunners’ main transfer target, valued at €100m (£85m) by the Portuguese club.


Caught Offside now claims that Arsenal is leading the race for Gyokeres’ signature, despite interest from other clubs, as they head into the upcoming transfer window.


Arsenal is reportedly prioritizing the acquisition of a new striker this summer, and among the potential targets on their list, Gyokeres is emerging as a strong contender alongside Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins.


While the Gunners have yet to finalize their decision on their main striker target, they have been gathering information on the potential cost of the deal.


It is believed that the transfer could be completed below Gyokeres’ €100 million release clause, although it would still come at a significant expense.


Due to this, Arsenal is considered to be in a better position to sign Gyokeres compared to other interested clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan. Although these clubs also admire the player, they do not anticipate being able to meet Sporting’s demands for him.
